Live on Frontier's purpose built beach camp in the south Pacific and get involved with the conservation of these beautiful, vital and yet most misunderstood animals.
The Fijian archipelago lies scattered lazily in the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, bathed in the radiant antipodean sunlight. Its towns and villages are veritable melting pots of cultural influences.

The Frontier-Fiji camp is fun and in your spare time and weekends off you'll have opportunities to swim and snorkel, play rugby against the unbeatable local side or even attend local church ceremonies. Alternatively you may enjoy a traditional cava session with the locals, play a wide variety of fun camp or card games from poker to bridge, chess or backgammon, or join in a camp quiz night. After a long hard day of diving you may prefer to relax and sit and chat to your new friends beside a roaring campfire, under a sky lit up by millions of stars.
For those of you with extra energy additional, higher level dive courses or speciality dives are available at competitive rates.
